Harrington Is The Latest In a Long Line of Famous Call of Duty Villains
When it was first announced there would be another Call of Duty game in the franchise, millions of fans around the world rejoiced. When it was revealed that it would be set in space, many fans began to wonder how that would affect the future of the series. And while we still don’t have any new details on how the space setting will be affecting gameplay or other options, we do know who is going to be the latest in a long line of Call of Duty Villains. According to Entertainment Weekly, Kit Harrington, who we have come to know and love as Lord Commander Jon Snow will be leaving The Wall for a while to lend his acting skills to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. A recently released behind the scenes video shows Kit Harrington in a motion capture suit as he portrays the unnamed villain in the upcoming game.
“Kit is an amazing talent, and the consummate pro,” Infinity Ward narrative director Taylor Kurosaki said in a press release. “Our story is about an epic showdown of opposing forces, and Kit immersed himself into the role and truly became the embodiment of the enemy, the Settlement Defense Front. We can’t wait for fans to see Kit play an entirely different kind of character.”
While Harrington is definitely younger than some of the previous Call of Duty villains, including Christopher Meloni and Kevin Spacey, we are sure he will do a great job. It will be interesting to see how Harrington does in a villainous role.
Snatch and Sherlock Holmes director Guy Richie will also be on hand to work with Harrington on his performance for Infinite Warfare. Ritchie previously directed the “Surprise” trailer for Black Ops 2.
